Motorola Droid 2 or BlackBerry Torch 9800? (2)

Both of these smartphones launch today. Both of them have a slider design, a touchscreen display, and a physical QWERTY keyboard, but only one of them would have to win your heart. So which one should you choose: The Motorola Droid 2 or the BlackBerry Torch 9800? The two phones have slight differences apart from the branding. For instance, while the Droid 2 runs on Android 2.2, the Torch is powered by a just-released BlackBerry 6 OS. The Motorola Droid 2 also has 3G mobile hotspot, 5-megapixel camera, DVD-quality video capture, speech-to-text input, and Adobe Flash Player 10.1. Meanwhile, the Torch 9800 has trackpad-based navigation, built-in GPS, 5-megapixel camera with image stabilizer and auto-focus, WiFi, and removable battery. Motorola Droid 2 is available on all Verizon retail points for US$199.99 after $100 mail-in rebate and two-year contract, aside from the nationwide talk plan starting at $39.99, the $29.99 charge for unlimited e-mail and web surfing, and optional $20 monthly 3G mobile hotspot service. The BlackBerry Torch 9800 is available on all AT&T retail points, as well as Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and RadioShack. It costs $199.99 with two-year contract, as well as data plan rates of $15 for 200MB of wireless data or $25 for 2GB. Source: MobileCrunch Read More

Motorola Droid Turbo (0)

Success in the smartphone world can be fleeting. Some makers may introduce a great product that easily catches on with consumers. Sometimes they follow it up with another model that does not live up to expectations. It is not just all about the features or even the screen size. There is that something that attracts to consumers to a particular product that many device makers cannot seem to pinpoint quite effectively. In a way, most makers experiment their way to introducing that next popular device to the public. If they get it just right, they may just have a winner in their hands. Such may be the case for the new Motorola Droid Turbo. The new Motorola Droid Turbo may be the follow-up to the Moto X smartphone that came out just this year. In a way, the Motorola Droid Turbo is an improvement of the former model. It addressed the shortcomings of Moto X to come up with a better phone feature-wise. The Motorola Droid Turbo features a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM and an improved 3,900 mAh battery, which Motorola says is good for up to 48 hours of continuous use. It also has a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen and a vastly improved 21MP rear camera to accompany a 2MP front facing camera. It is quite a monster in terms of performance and features. What might somehow be a letdown is its single speaker. Although it can play audio quite well, there is no way to distinguish left and right sounds unlike the usual pair of speakers on other Motorola phones. The design of the phone also does not stand out that well. But other than that, the Motorola Droid Turbo is worth checking out. It is available exclusively at Verizon Wireless for $200 on a 2-year contract. As a stand-alone phone, it will cost you around $600. Image Source: Verizon Acer Switch 10 Read More

Android Wear, mobile OS for wearables, unveiled (0)

Google has introduced a preview version of its mobile OS for wearable devices. The Android Wear is being offered to app developers to create a wearable version of their existing apps, as well as customized notifications. Google also says additonal APIs and resources will roll out soon for developers and hobbyists alike. Android Wear aims to bring contextual weather, like traffic updates, weather, and text messages, to the wearer when it is most needed without having to whip out your smartphone. It is also voice-enabled, which gets activated once the user says "OK Google" followed by the command. The company also revealed it is working with giant consumer electronics brands like Samsung, Motorola, LG, HTC, and Asus on developing Android Wear devices. Google has also reached out to chip makers like Intel, Qualcomm, and Broadcom, as well as fashion brands such as Fossil Group. One example of this is the Moto 360. Available this summer, the device appears like a wristwatch with a round face, except that it runs programs aside from telling time. Its band comes in a dark metal finish, although users can also opt for a gray leather strap. Source: Mashable Read More

Google acquires Nest home automation for $3.2 billion (0)

Well, this is a surprise. Nest, the company behind a line of home automation device, has announced its acquisition from Google. It comes as mild shock because founders Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers were part of the original iPod team; even the Nest Thermostat is sold at Apple stores. Still Google acquires Nest for a whopping $3.2 billion. With that said, Google assures users that Nest will continue to operate under its own brand, like what happened to Motorola. "Google will help us fully realize our vision of the conscious home and allows us to change the world fater than we ever could if we continued to go it alone," Fadell said in a statement. "We've had great momentum, but this is a rocket ship." Despite its acquisition to the company behind the Android operating system, Nest will continue to offer apps for iOS and Android. This means iPhone users will still be able to manipulate their smart thermostats and smoke alarms even after the acquisition gets approved. There is also a possibility of integrating Nest's technology into Google's hardware, but both parties remains tight-lipped about it. "Nest's product line obviously caught the attention of Google and I'm betting that there's a lot of cool stuff we could do together, but nothing to share today," Rogers said.

Motorola Moto G: Get it unlocked for $179 (3)

Motorola has unveiled its latest inexpensive phone that does not scrimp on performance. The Motorola Moto G sports a 4.5-inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, dual-SIM capability, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. "Next year, 500 million people will by a smartphone for about $200," Motorola's CEO Dennis Woodside said at the Moto G launch event. "Up until now they've had a choice: Buy a cheap phone with last year's tech, or a used phone. We don't think that's fair, we believe we've given them a better choice." This entry-level gadget boasts a curved design similar to the Moto X, as well as 8GB of internal storage and an extra 50GB of Google Drive cloud storage. Buyers can choose from 19 customization options with its back covers and foldable covers of different colors. This smartphone runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with a promise of an Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade by January. The Motorola Moto G is now available in Brazil and parts of Europe, while the United States, Middle East, and parts of Asia will have to wait until January to purchase it for $179 unlocked. A 16GB version is also available for $199. Source: Mashable Read More

Motorola Shows Off US-Made Moto X Smartphone (0)

Motorola has officially introduced to the public the Moto X, its first flagship smartphone after Google acquired the mobile company. And just like what Guy Kawasaki hinted back in March, the phone is fully-customizable before the smartphone lands on your doorstep. The Motorola Moto X allows consumers to customize some of the phone's outer components such as the front and back covers. They offer more than 2,000 design combinations wherein they can choose different colors combinations for their covers and even the accents through Motorola's online design studio. You can even have a custom message engraved at the back, as well as a cover made of wood, if you prefer it that way. The new Motorola smartphone is assembled in the United States, the first smartphone to be made in the country after a long time. This is a welcoming news amidst a sea of overseas-made smartphones. Because the Moto X is manufactured domestically, it will only take up to four days for the phone to be shipped to your door. Apart from the design, you can also choose between a 16GB or 32GB version of the Moto X. The device runs on Android 4.2.2 and has 2GB of RAM. It features a 4.7-inch touch screen, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera, a two-megapixel front camera, and a capability to record video with 1080p HD resolution. It also has a new camera interface that lets users launch the camera just by shaking the Moto X quickly and tapping anywhere on the screen to shoot a photo. It also comes with advanced voice control options, wherein you just have to say "OK Google Now" to activate, as well as up to 50GB of free cloud storage for two years with Google Drive. The Moto X will be available first on AT&T as early as late August and will cost $199.99 with a two-year contract for the 16GB version. Shell out $50 more, or $249.99, and you get the 32GB model. Other carriers such as Sprint, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, and T-Mobile will offer the Moto X at a later date. Source: Washington Post Image source: CNET, Motorola Read More

Motorola Adviser Hints at Custom-Designed Smartphones (0)

Rumors about Motorola possibly unveiling custom-designed Android handsets has spread like wildfire after an adviser for Motorola hinted about it. In his post in Google+, noted Silicon Valley venture capitalist Guy Kawasaki writes: "Wouldn't it be great if you could personalize your phone like this?," referring to a video of a customizable car. And it might just happen. A recent post on AndroidAndMe hints that the so-called Motorola X Phone (pictured) will actually be part of a larger brand and will include custom-designed configurations for storage capacity, color, apps, ringtones, and others. Another source suggest that this smartphone may even allow users to customize the memory, processors, and carrier support, with reported one-week delivery guarantee. Such statements of custom-designed phones are not easy to dismiss, even in the age of Reddit and trolling in the Internet. However, there are sectors who express doubt about the rumor. "Is Guy having a bit of fun with his fan base or is he legitimately gauging public interest," asks Scott Webster of CNET. Perhaps we will know the answer at the upcoming Google I/O, once it is the Google-owned mobile brand's turn to present. Source: AndroidAndMe, via CNET Image source: Tinhte.vn Read More

Motorola Unveils RAZR M Smartphone (0)

Motorola has introduced the latest addition to the RAZR family, including the $99 RAZR M smartphone. The device has a 4.3-inch touch screen and LTE radio, all while packing most of the good stuff from its larger counterparts. The RAZR M runs on Android 4.0.4 and comes with haptic feedback. Its smaller size--as compared to other Android handsets--make it attractive to those who like their smartphones as average-sized as the iPhone, all while retaining a larger screen. Tech analysts claim that the RAZR M could make the iPhone 4S a run for its money. The M is available now, a week before Apple will introduce the new iPhone and will likely slash the iPhone 4S for a bargain $99 price tag. This gives the new Motorola smartphone a headstart at the retail race. Source: TechCrunch Read More

Sprint to Launch Keyboard-Equipped Motorola Photon Q This Weekend (0)

Some people still like the feel of tactile keys as they type on their smartphones. Sprint understands this demand and sets to launch the Motorola Photon Q, which comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, beginning August 19th. The Photon Q, which eerily looks like the Droid 4, will set you back $199 with a two-year contract. The new smartphone for Sprint also features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor of unspecified nature, a 4.3-inch qHD ColorBoost LCD screen, an 8-megapixel camera at the back, and even NFC support. The Photon Q also appears to be running on a tweaked Android Ice Cream Sandwich seen on the Atrix HD. Pre-orders for the Motorola Photon Q are now accepted.

Motorola Xoom to Get Android Jelly Bean (1)

Looks like the Nexus 7 will not be the only tablet with Android Jelly Bean. If the tipsters from Droid-Life are to be believed, the Motorola Xoom tablet will also get its OS upgrade, which the aging tablet desperately needs. However, not ever proud Xoom owner will be getting the Jelly Bean goodness. Only the U.S.-made WiFi model is assured of a Jelly Bean upgrade, while we have yet to hear the same for the Verizon WiFi version. Meanwhile, owners of the 4G Xoom model will have to wail over their choice of hardware. You can now check for the Jelly Bean upgrade by going to the device's settings and check for the new update. If it does not appear immediately, simply clear the Google Services Framework (click Settings>Apps>All>Google Services Framework>Clear Data) first. It may require several attempts, but the update will pop up eventually. Source: Droid-Life, via TechCrunch Read More
